The first time I walked into Christiaan Michael and personally met Christiaan(Chris), I could immediately feel the High class standard and passion Chris has in what he does.
He made me feel at home and knew exactly what I wanted, almost like he read my mind. Chris chose the most beautiful wedding shoes for me and I knew these shoes were the ones I’ve been looking for, even though I searched for 6 months for ”the perfect wedding shoes”. When Chris put those shoes on my feet, I felt like Cinderella. This was it ! He made me feel SO at home and I connected with him instantly, most humble , caring and respectable person I have ever met.
He went to all the trouble of dyeing my shoes for me to white (instead of original ivory) added his personal touch onto the shoes and voila, magic!
My fiancé ( now husband ) and I went for dance lessons for about 2 months before our wedding. I practised our dance in my wedding shoes, they were SO comfortable that I could do the entire foxtrot, dips and twirls! One week before our wedding, I took my shoes back to Chris, just to ask him for final clean. He did this with a huge smile! That same day I found out that Chris did Wedding Planning as well, if I knew this earlier. I would have used him from DAY ONE!!!
He offered to be there for me on our wedding day, I couldn’t believe it, I definitely wanted him there!!
On our Wedding day, aaah, Chris, he was my saving grace and best friend,without him, I would never have coped!
He ensured that all the decor, flowers and small fine details were perfect. He kept an eye and made all the changes where it was necessary. He steamed all our dresses, including mine, and made sure that I remained calm and relaxed throughout the entire day. Chris helped me get into my wedding dress, tied it to perfection, put on my garter, accessories and shoes for me, and absolutely did everything for me! He even taught me a breathing technique so that I would not cry and ruin my makeup, and it worked like a bomb!!
During and after photos he made sure my dress, hair, shoes and lip gloss was in order!
Chris treated me like a Princess and really made me feel so special, he was absolutely incredible and I wish I could have that day over again to take it all in!
If you are looking for THE BEST Wedding planner, you CANNOT go wrong with Chris.
Myself and my husband are eternally grateful for what you did for us Chris. Thank you for being who you are!
We will always keep you close to our hearts

After months of searching for the perfect pair of wedding shoes, I came across Christiaan Michael via the website and have never looked back! The selection is stylish and sophisticated and easily tailored to suit any taste. I found my pair on the first visit and spent the entire wedding up to midnight without a niggle to my feet! My mother also purchased a pair for the wedding and I’ve just taken mine back to be dyed for anytime use- fabulous! All photos credits go to Heathyr Huss of Heathyr Huss Photography.
Thank you for the perfect shoes. I could not have asked for a better team to support me with this very important aspect of my wedding. I will gladly recommend you in future.
